Incausa envisioned creating a model for market placement and distribution that allows them to observe the effects generated by capital to their sovereignty. Using the profits from their productions and developed logistics network, Incausa is able to act as a pro bono mediator, connecting the trade directly to the wholesale market without any share of profits. Incausas intention is to reignite indigenous heritage, uplifting cultural values and building sustainable opportunities to the artisan and retailer.

THOUGHTS BEHIND THE PRODUCT
We highly respect the mission of Incausa and the design and quality of their products. Incense Sticks are one of our daily rituals to refresh our senses. We light a stick while meditating, reading or working. The calming and connecting smell of an incense stick makes us feel grounded and free. The use of incense is a spiritual tradition that has been involved during sacred rituals for centuries and should therefore be highly appreciated. It should only be used with the respect towards indigenous communities who exchange their knowledge, tradition and ingredients with us.
